VICTORY: Forced Gender Transition Stopped, Dad Wins
Austin, Texas – According to sources and reports from the courthouse, Jeff Younger will be allowed to have a voice in his son’s medical procedures, effectively stopping any gender transition. Jeff Younger has been very clear about his desire to call his son by his legal name, James, and raise him as a boy. Today’s decision should allow him to do that.
Mary Elizabeth Castle, Policy Advisor for Texas Values who was at the Courthouse today said, “Today we see that children should not be forced to undergo life-altering and dangerous gender transitions. This is a victory for parental rights and common sense.”
Texas Values has helped spread the word of Jeff’s fight to protect his son, including having Jeff Younger speak at our Texas Faith & Family Day at the Capitol back in March of this year.
In recent days many Texas elected officials have weighed in on this issue as well.
FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. #JamesYounger

“Texans understand that children…should be supported and properly cared for as they grow up in our communities. I trust that DFPS will act immediately upon our request, conduct a thorough investigation, and protect this child.” – AG Paxtonhttps://t.co/lyT03UibaV

Absent a special session between now & the the 87th Session, I will introduce legislation that prohibits the use of puberty blockers in these situations for children under 18. We missed our opportunity to do so in the 86th Session. We won’t miss the next one. #savejamesyounger https://t.co/BpbGDPwujZ

The 1st bill I file in the 87th will add “Transitioning Of a Minor” as Child Abuse. Upwards of 500 minors are being transitioned in TX
Cowards kept us from protecting these children in the 86th
The wrath of Texans will be heard in the 87th.
Texas will step up to #SaveJamesYounger https://t.co/bqbo6tgbbT
